In 2012 we challenged you to write 12 letters of Gratitude to people that influenced your life. Many of you did this and wrote amazing stories of the experience.
This year 2013 we are focusing on BEING PRESENT. This is your life. Each day is a gift. You can't turn in yesterday for more time. So make the most of each day and continue to be grateful and embrace life! Be Present! We are changing the world...ONE DAY AT A TIME!

So I am sitting here at the computer VERY sore!  My new word for the day is EXPLOSIVE!  Nothing around here has blown up and my husband and I haven't had one of our occasional heated discussions.  The explosive I am referring to is my new kettle bell work out.  (They say the moves should be explosive...OH MY!!!)

My husband is into crossfit training.  He loves it.  And a friend of mine recently mentioned that a friend of hers started using a kettle bell and was totally getting in shape.  So when my sweet heart recently went to a sale on equipment, he was kind enough to pick me up...not one, not two, but 3 kettle bells.  Although, from the looks of things, I won't be moving past my 10 pounder any time soon.  Click here to see the work out I tried with cute Judy Greer...

It wasn't as easy as it looked.  I did two sets 12-15 of each set.  My kids cheered and counted for me.  When I had baby #3 I was up to 225 pounds.  UGH!  Today on the scale I weighed 175 lbs.  YEAH!  I cheered inside.  I CAN do hard things.  I am more than half way to my goal.  Another 45 pounds to go.  In two pounds I will be to the pre-pregnancy weight of child #1, but I won't be quite satisfied.  However, more than just losing weight, this time I want to be fit.  Today was a good start in the right direction.

I challenge you to try hard things.  I KNOW  Y O U can do it!!!

Changing the world...ONE letter at a time!
